NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) -

As a Nashville family prepares to bury a teenager who was shot to death last week at his bus stop, police say the killer is still out there somewhere.

Police continue to search for 17-year-old Eric Goodner, who is suspected of shooting and killing Pearl-Cohn classmate Johnathan Johnson, 17, while he was waiting on his school bus.

Now, the community is stepping up to help get Goodner behind bars. Police said Monday an anonymous, concerned citizen has posted a $500 reward for information leading to Goodner's arrest. The $500 reward is in addition to the reward of up to $1,000 offered by Nashville Crime Stoppers.

Investigators believe it's not out of the realm of possibility that someone could be helping Goodner stay hidden.

"[Goodner] is 17 years old. I don't think he has a bank account with unlimited resources. Somebody is probably helping him," said North Precinct Cmdr. Terrence Graves.

Police said Goodner shot Johnson two times as the victim waited to catch the bus near his home on 10th Avenue North.

Anyone seeing Goodner or having information regarding his whereabouts is urged to contact the Emergency Communications Center at 862-8600 or Crime Stoppers at 74-CRIME.
